p.1 #1 · Badest Ass SOB I ever met!


Met and made buddies (in my mine at least) with quite a few leps over the years -- estimate it is around 30 or so. But this bad boy was in a class all his own - his very presence reeked mean and badass. When I first met him, he had just dispatched a female baboon and the two big male baboons that came to her rescue. Surprisingly, baboons are not just your average pet store monkey -- they can be incredibly fierce and can put up a really good fight with any big cat. You can see a wound on this leps left flank administered by one of the males.
Cheers, Andrew

His disposition is clearly illustrated in your fine capture of him. Another great shot of a proud animal Andrew.

The wound over the eye and the stern glare say it all Andrew, excellent work.

Awesome portrait, Andrew. Love the backstory too. It's nice to vicariously meet your big bad ass cat friends through these FM posts.

Wonderful image, Andrew!
I took a 2-week safari in Kenya and never saw leopards. But I was close to a large male baboon, and agree- they are 90 pounds of muscle and teeth. A leopard taking on two of them- and winning- is a very big deal.

The face with the scars and old scar tissue reminds me of the photos of Marciano after a tough fight -- beat and bruised but he was the one who walked out of the ring on his own feet.

Your leopard captures - focus, lighting and poses - are wonderful to say the least.
